Round Up: The British Wool Show 2016

A couple of weeks ago, and just a week after Fibre East, we were back out at The British Wool Show at York Auction Mart.

It was a lot of fun and lovely to see so many of you. I’m not sure what’s happening next year, but hopefully we’ll be there again!

Here’s a snapshot…


The nutter on her way into the isolation box there is Estelle from Midwinter Yarns – they had a stand there too..

We bought a pair of 40mm knitting needles between us from Woolly Mahoosive and tried fighting with them.

Thought we’d best show off some knitwear whilst we were there..

I also discovered Treddling Woman, who sells handmade bags, pouches, and needle rolls. Of course I had to sample a few items, and came home with a larger bag, two of the super-cool deckchair yarn bowls, and a needle roll. I’ll show you them and my other purchases when I eventually find the bag they came home in – our house is chaos at the moment so I don’t know where anything is. Anyway, I can heartily recommend these bags – they’re really well made and the fabrics are different and unique.

Our next show is Yarndale on the 24th and 25th of September.. see you there??
